Practice and Procedure

R v (1) IK (2) AB (3) KA (2007)

PUBLISHED April 27, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 971

It was inappropriate for the principles of double jeopardy to be extended and applied to a situation where a defendant was being prosecuted for offences under the Terrorism Act 2000 having previously appealed to the Special Immigration Appeals Commission against a certificate issued under the Anti-terrorism, Crime and Security Act 2001 s.21(1), since the latter proceedings were not criminal.
